I went to the Little Hills Festival we have here in St. Charles, MO over the weekend. There are a lot of crafts and various venders on the streets. There was in a couple of locations where these guys were standing preaching, you know the “End is near” kind of guys. One guy even stood on a box……reading. One of the guys held a sign that read “Fake Christians keep on sinning”. It irritated me. I don’t usually get into discussions with this people about religion; but I thought about it with this guy. His statement is not true, not in the way he meant it. He was saying only real Christians do not sin. God knows we all sin. Yes, Christians do sin.

Anyone can claim anything to be offensive. Your neighbor may have a purple house you find ugly. Does it offend you? Young males and females are loudly vulgar on the metro, that is not only offensive, hateful things are being said and they show no respect for other passengers. BUT……..they aren’t being removed.

Children today are more likely to learn how to color their hair purple, stick rings through their noses, how to wear pants half way down their asses, and where to get the most offensive tattoos.
Whats next? Religion? When will they start pulling down religious statues. Will offended Muslims/and or any other group start demanding the Catholic Church pull down their statues, symbols?
I’ve walked or driven past Confederate statues before myself. Funny, I’ve never had one speak to me, shout-out at me, spit on me or even rap out offensive lyrics. They just stood their minding their own stiff business, reminding us of what once was and apparently reminding us that not much has really changed, has it?
